Benton Park West, #4
These beautiful houses face the back of St. Alexus Hospital in Benton Park West. Perhaps a hospital administrator lived in the house at one time?The house above looks like a house that might be in the West End, or Cabanne; it shows that this neighborhood was still thriving even as the city pushed to the west.I love this Art Deco style building on the corner; I don't know anything about it, but it's a nice treat and a break from the rhythm of red brick so common in the neighborhood.
